Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I am on probation with a 9:00 p.m. curfew. It is after 9:00 p.m. and the manager at my halfway house has authorized me to go to the store -- is it a violation of my probation if I stop to have sex in the back of my car on the way to the store?

Answer: Sorry, but yes. (TCPalm, Woman in PSL accused of violating probation to have sex)

2) Question: I got busted by NBC's "To Catch A Predator." As you can imagine, that caused me significant emotional distress. Can I sue the network?

Answer: Of course. (Hollywood, Esq., NBC Must Defend Conduct in 'To Catch A Predator' Lawsuit Says Judge)

3) Question: We just learned that our daughter was accidentally switched at birth with another baby at the hospital 12 years ago. It turns out that a maternity nurse mixed up their wrist tags at birth. Neither of the girls wants to leave the families that raised them. Now what?

Answer: Tough one. One option is to get a settlement from the hospital and then build a large new house so that both families can live under one roof. (CBS News, Russian swapped-at-birth families awarded $100K)
